Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the option to design, and the development can happen at the same time.""The ability to stand up a highly available SOA Suite, which has full DR capabilities, in a remote center and synchronize the databases using Data Guard.""We were able to scale out using multiple application and web servers balanced by hardware load balancers and Weblogic clustering.""In case there is something that doesn't work out of the box, you have the flexibility to customize it."

"I like that I don't need any extra tools to keep the solution up and running.""We strongly rely on our SAP data. We need access to the information to analyze it, so the solution allows us to make use of the data that we get from SAP. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution.""With SAP, you can trust what it tells you.""Finance and distribution are the most important features.""The presentation is the most valuable feature. It's very conceptual. We had to follow the instructions very strictly. It's a Dutch or German product and we had to follow it step-by-step."

Cons
"If the disk space expansion can be made more flexible, not requiring a database restart, it would be a major benefit.""Various parts of SOA, BPEL, and so on, each have their own consoles which need to be accessed individually with different logins. It would be better from an admin perspective if all the consoles were accessible via a single login.""They supply lots of documentation but finding what we need is challenging at times."

More Oracle SOA Suite Cons »

"The initial setup was not very easy.""The solution needs to better integrate Salesforce. It is a key player in the market and a lot of companies are looking for a lot more integration around it.""SAP isn't particularly user-friendly and you have to develop a long list of favorites to be able to get around.""Technical support response time was slow.""It can always improve. It should have the ability to connect with other databases. It was a little bit tough to do that. I would like to have the ability to research certain markets and then integrate it with NetWeaver. I'd like to compare it with other databases from other companies being used in the world so we can integrate it with our own products to compare if we are still current on the market."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This product is WebLogic based, hence it can be both resource hungry as well as expensive from a licensing point of view."

Overview

Oracle SOA Suite is a comprehensive, standards-based software suite to build, deploy and manage integration following the concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA). The components of the suite benefit from consistent tooling, a single deployment and management model, end-to-end security and unified metadata management. Oracle SOA Suite helps businesses lower costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets, regardless of the environment (OS, application server, etc.) they run in, or the technology they were built upon. Its easy-to-use, re-use focused, unified application development tooling and end-to-end lifecycle management support further reduces development and maintenance cost and complexity.
